Ant ships xerces, but not XSL engine. ant-xalan1.jar is not xalan; it is 
those .class files of ant that depend on xalan1,.

You are probably using the version of Xalan that came with Java. Get a 
new version first -it may fix your problem immediately. if not, create a 
good self-contained test case and report the bug against xalan.
